About 6weeks ago I went to the doctor with extreme fatigue and unable to find my words when I would speak. My Dr. sent me straight to the ER.. After a few hours of the ER and a clean CT scan I got better and they sent me home. The next day I went back to my PCP and she sent me to a neurologist. He sent me to have a transcranial bubble doppler. I tested positive for bubbles- 78hits while resting and a shower when bearing down. The neurologist told me this was severe and sent me to the cardiologist. I had a TEE which confirmed the pfo in my heart. He told me he wanted to send me to one of his partners to get the hole repaired. His partner put me on plavix. I have been having tons of symptoms for so long. Fatigue, daily headaches, tingling sensations in my arms and legs, edema in my legs, dizziness and foginess did I mention fatigue. Anyways I am scared. My sister died of stroke complications at the age of 44 and my mom is currently in a nursing home due to a series of strokes. I am afraid that meds are just not going to fix this. Am I overreacting? or should I seek a second opinion?
